Product Description

Amazon.ca

Shirley Temple is at her plucky peak in this film. She bests legend Lionel Barrymore: literally (her credit is above his) and figuratively (as her character softens his). The Little Colonel is set in the post-Civil War South. Little Lloyd Sherman hopes to reunite her mother, Elizabeth Lloyd (Evelyn Venable), with her stern Confederate Civil War veteran grandfather, Colonel Lloyd (Barrymore). Six years earlier, Lloyd's mother had run away to marry Yankee Jack Sherman (John Lodge). Now the young family hopes to return to Elizabeth's plantation home.

Like The Littlest Rebel, made the same year (1935), the film has questionable politics, featuring a supplicant Mom Becky (the formidable future Oscar-winner Hattie McDaniel) and a poor-spelling butler, Walker (Bill "BoJangles" Robinson). But Temple, as sweetly energetic little Lloyd, is affectionate with both, as well as with her African American playmates, May Lily (Avonnie Jackson) and Henry Clay (Nyanza Potts). (Temple apparently shared the sentiment in real life, and once said Robinson was her favorite costar.) The Little Colonel features the amazing dance number with Temple and Robinson merrily tapping up and down a staircase. --N.F. Mendoza

"THE LITTLE COLONEL" (released: 22 February 1935) (80 mins) (B&W/Color Versions) - Under David Butler (Director), Buddy G. DeSylva (Producer), William Conselman (Screenwriter), Annie Fellows Johnston (Book Author), Arthur C. Miller (Cinematographer), William Skall (Cinematographer), Art Lange (Musical Direction/Supervision), Thomas Moore (Composer (Music Score), Irene Morra (Editor) - - - - - - our story line opens with crusty old Colonel Lloyd (Lionel Barrymore) is used to having his ornery way so when he finds out his daughter Elizabeth (Evelyn Venable) who is determined to run off with Yankee Jack Shermon (John Lodge) to be married, he confronts her in a heated exchange and vows never to see her again if she does, and then she leaves --- years later Elizabeth, with her husband and their young daughter Miss Lloyd (Shirley Temple), decides to return to a small house that belonged to her mother and which happens to be next door to her stubborn father's home --- they soon have an accidental meeting, with a few clashes of granddaughter and the elderly Colonel just to see who is the most stubborn!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Cure for the Stubborns Feb. 11 2002
Format:VHS Tape
If you have a little mule (or 2) around the house, put this on the TV and watch the anger melt. This movie still shines. In the original version it's B&W until the very last scene in color. Purposely done this way; cloudy sentiment until the happy, colorful ending. My video copy (bought at amazon), however is colorized throughout. Doesn't matter much. Still a great little entertaining old film.
It's mostly about old tart, southerner colonel Barrymore (playing a part twice his age with classic finesse) and little outspoken Shirley. Basically, you have to be able to find hilarity in a spunky kid arguing with an old fart.
Also great is the stuff between Shirley & her black housemaid, and between her & 2 little black friends. Classic l'il rascal type scenes abound, such as when the 3 copy the impoverished Babtists who use a local creek for religious purposes, and when they melt the cranky old colonel by getting him & Shirley to horse-pull their wagon slowly around the rural town. At this point, the neighbors get a gas full at the colonel's change of heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Curly Top Will Win You Over Aug. 9 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I don't quite understand why they say that this is more of an adult movie. I think this is one of Temple's bests,and boy I've seen em all. When the Door Shuts It Will Never Again Be Opened for Elizabeth and Jack. Clueless? Elizabeth's dad the colonel played by Lionel Barrymore flips out when his beautiful daughter runs away and marries a northener. (let me remind you this is post civil war) Then they have a beautiful child who's name is Lloyd Sherman (temple) well while the father stays out west to get money the mother and daughter move into a cottage right next to the colonel's house ! Temple is at her peak or maybe it was just me imagaining,but anyone who sees this movie is bedazzled. It is quite a joy to see her and Barrymore fighting because of him poking her and then watching the mud throw ! She's very cute and very ummm what's the word...outspoken? Well whatever that word is you'll see. ... In one point of the movie shirley asks her grandmotherd name and Lionel says Aminthus ,if you are a shirley fan you will know that she had told him the name because he had asked for line. She thought she was helping out but he thought she was making fujn of him. When he flipped out on her she was angry.When he thretened to leave the set They made her apologize even though all she did was try to help. This movie is great,especially watch the staircase dance. Shirley didn't understand racism quite yet but Bill Robinson (bojangles) was her favorite person to work with,the chemistry between the 2 is just fabolous!@

5.0 out of 5 stars A great one for Shirley fans to enjoy! Jan. 2 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I loved this movie, as it showcases Shirley's seemingly unending talent, even at such a tender age. However, I resent it when people review this story and rail about how offensive the treatment of African Americans is in it. It makes me angry when people would seek to rewrite history, or worse yet, omit it altogether just because it isn't, in their opinion, "politically correct" for current times. What is depicted in this motion picture simply represents what was going on THEN. Yes, it is sad. But only by exposing our children to representation of historical events such as these and then making the comparison to how far we have come socially and politically now can we hope to ensure that they learn the lesson that this story seeks to convey--that prejudice and racism are always wrong and, if you lead the kind of life you should, you can help to overcome these wrongs. And who better to convey such a lesson than Shirley Temple?
